With the dance competitions coming up Frederick and Anika practised and practised the tango. They were very good at it.
On the evening of the competition they put their heart and soul into the event. They didn’t win, but they got second. Frederick and Anika were thrilled. Everyone said they would have got first if Frederick didn’t think he was the cat’s pyjamas. He walked around like he was the best thing since sliced bread. Even though the tango is an arrogant sort of dance there’s no need to strut up and down like a painted canary.
But only Anika knew. The tango was on Frederick’s bucket list. The doctor had given him only a few weeks.
